kikkoman at SushiSamba London


The Kikkoman brand is famous for its slow fermented and complex soy sauce and now has a couple of new additions to its Teriyaki range. To celebrate the new range and its new website, food bloggers and journalists were invited to a special meal at SushiSamba in the iconic Heron Tower. The restaurant is located on the 38th Floor of the building which features truly breathtaking views of London.

The meal was a delightful combination of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian dishes created especially for the occasion by the head chef.
A unique sharing menu was seasoned with Kikkoman’s famed soy sauce, and, we got to taste the brand new additions to Kikkoman’s family of Teriyaki sauces. They are perfect to help reproduce some of the dishes at home and add a Japanese flair to barbeques at home.

We started the evening with a couple of cocktails which each had the addition of Kikkoman soy sauce in them.  Recently, thinking out of the box is a favourite theme of the food scene and using cupboard products in unusual ways is gaining momentum.

The new additions to Kikkoman’s Teriyaki family are the BBQ Teriyaki sauce, Teriyaki sauce with roasted garlic and Teriyaki sauce with toasted sesame – all perfect for a marinade and quick sauces for BBQ to add that Japanese flair to your dishes. For those that are cutting down on gluten or are coeliac,  there’s also gluten free teriyaki marinade.  No-one misses out on good flavour.

    Glad to have come across your post. The last time I tried sushi was at Atlantis the Palm in Dubai. My husband took me there for my birthday dinner and I had an amazing evening. This place looks promising, will check it out!

    I have to say it is very rare that I have had sushi as there tends to be limitations on veggie cuisine. That being said I like the sound of Sushi Samba and would love to check the menu out! x

    I love soy sauce. I didn't know there were so many different varieties in the range, I will have to check them out.

    No meal of mine is complete without soy sauce. The the BBQ Teriyaki sauce, and Teriyaki sauce with roasted garlic sound like my cup of tea.
